THE CRAFT CULTURE DRIVES DEVELOPMENT

Craft brewers and distillers drive urban development by incorporating social places into manufacturing environments that traditionally have not served as gathering place for the local community. However, responding to consumer demand for these places often runs against long-standing regulation that may no longer serve a public, commercial or governmental interest, creating a challenge for artisan producers in the new economy.

A panel discussion at RHI's 2017 Sociable City Leadership Summit discussed this trend, the changing role of the regulatory, distributor and retail sectors, and the economic contributions of this industry sector and role of demographics in the trend.
